“Amazing pool and a great steakhouse”
Reviewed 23 April 2011

Many publications argue that the Yacht Club features WDW's best pool area and they do have a point. I still love the pool at Animal Kingdom Lodge, but must recognize that the Yacht Club pool is special in its own way. Children can build sand castles right in the middle of the pool (with green Disney courtesy buckets nonetheless) and the water slide tower is... a pirate ship mast! Accommodations are nice if a bit dated -- bathrooms could also be bigger -- but overall this was a great stay. Dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse was a wonderful experience, with good service, excellent steaks and a Truffled Mac & Cheese to die for.

Recently spent a week with our daughters, ages 11 and 14, at the Yacht Club. The location is fantastic, as you can walk to Epcot, in around 10 minutes or even to Hollywood Studios, probably around 20 minutes. You can also take a boat to either, or to the Boardwalk area across the lake. The hotel is is elegant without being stuffy and the pool area is the best we've seen at Disney.

If budget allows, I would recommend staying on the Club level. The concierge service on the floor is fantastic in helping with anything you need. They were able to change and make dinner reservations at a moment's notice. Also, the lounge is a really nice perk, offering a nice little happy hour between 5 and 7 where they serve hors d'oeuvres along with wine and beer. Pretty nice after a long day in the parks. The continental breakfast was good and allows you to get a start on the day bright and early.

Overall, we had a great stay at the Yacht Club and there is no doubt that we will return.

Were to start this hotel is truly amazing..... Myself, husband and two children aged 16 and 11 travel to Disney yearly we love it we have stayed in this hotel twice once in december09 in a suit on club level which was out of this world and in October 2010 for Halloween. I booked this direct with Disney on my previous visit and got a 40% discount but even without the discount this hotel is worth every penny. We stayed in club level the room is clean housekeeping is excellent room in generous. the club level service is like no ther and everyone raves on it as being the best in Disney. In the morning the breakfast has everything from cereal to pastries fresh fruit tease coffees chocolate shake juice etc. In the afternoon they have sodas hand cooked chips and dip, jellies, fruit. And in the evening they have drinks and snacks between 5~7 with beer and wine and then later on they serve cookies, cakes, milk and brandy, disarono and baileys. But what I have discovered about the yacht is that if you would like a beer or glass of wine other than between 5=7 just ask and they will gladly serve you. The service at this hotel is second to none and you need to see it to believe it. To eat out on resort eat at yachtsman steakhouse first class make sure that you pre book in advance it is nice to book a 8pm table to enjoy and relax at the end of a long day. If I had to say one negative thing it would be that the hotel does not offer a fast food service only the bar by the pool but the adjoining hotel beach resort does and it is just next door. Another really good place to eat is beaches and cream the burgers are like the size of a side plate and are meant to be the juicyest in Disney. The pool at this hotel is out of this world and has good activities it also has a sand bottom. If you want to character dine the beach club has character breakfast. I can go on and on but it will take me forever. Please check out this hotel you won't regret it and you will never forget it. One ofThe best things about this hotel is location location is is A short walk from Epcot and Disney boardwalk it has excellent night life dance clubs sports bars and many places to eat the hotel even has it's own beach were you can watch a late night movie and watch illuminations reflection of earth. You can also walk to Hollywood studios or take a boat ride. I really must end my review otherwise I will just keep going.

They claimed I did not check out and billed me for three more days.. They arranged my ground transportation back to the airport on the Magical express. It is amazing how much run around I am getting from the billing dept. ... I have never had this kind of trouble from any hotel, let alone one that claims to have the ultimate in customer experience.

The hotel has a wonderful location and was chosen to hold our conference for this very reason. The rooms were clean as was the pool, man-made beach, and the boardwalk.
However, for the "over-the-top" price of each room, I was surprised at the lack of ammenities and the nickel and diming that went on. Extra fees for internet service, extra fees for use of the inner tubes while going down the "Lazy River", no bottle of water provided in the room (a bottle of water could be purchased in the vending machines), beverages that cost as much as a dinner out at home.
Glad I went for the experience but will not be returning.

Just submitted my review of Portofino Bay @ Universal. Crucial to stay on site there in order to enjoy the parks. At Disney, not so much - except for the Dining Plan. That we loved! We took the "Deluxe" option which, if you skip breakfast of lunch, permits you to eat dinner, gratis,(except for the gratuity), at Disney's super-expensive restaurants. We were there for 3 nights, so we ate at the Flying Fish, the Yachtsman, and Jiko. So much food!!! After 3 days there we had to get out - we could not possibly eat anymore! Not sure if you can take the Dining Plan without staying on site.

The lobby was very nice (the Animal Kingdom lodge was way nicer), the room itself was very tired, and in need of an update to justify the price they charge. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been updated, ever. Very convenient 5 minute walk to Epcot and Disney Boardwalk, which is a very pleasant place to hang at night. Chose this particular Disney hotel because of the pool, which is very large, and always had available chairs.

Staff are, without exception, eerily friendly & solicitous, a la Stepford.
